Swiss Franc Could Move to the Low 1.20’s (Ben Fletcher)

Swiss Franc Could Move to the Low 1.20’s (Ben Fletcher)

The Swiss Franc could well be in for a surge in the next week as the UK looks set to have an interest rate cut. The Bank of England will decide on Thursday if the current UK economy needs an interest rate cut and potentially further stimulus. There is a general belief and some evidence from business surveys that suggest the Brexit has started to have an impact on the economy. The Monetary Policy Committee at the bank chose not to increase rates in July due to the lack of evidence. However there is arguably proof that there has been a slowdown. Therefore if the

Sterling continues to slowly climb upward against the Swiss Franc (Joseph Wright)

Since the initial shock of the ‘Brexit’ when the Pound fell as low as 1.2483 we have witnessed and slow and steady climb in the Pounds value.
